The Festival of Prosperity and Virtue

And then came Onam..the day has been great with fun and frolic at home. A paisley pattern with some hand plucked fragrance..My thoughts wandered around our villages, along the fields, the small narrow alleys of my village. The white sands of my village, the fragrance of the hand plucked onam flowers still linger on. Memories fresh of the floral patterns drawn by my Dad ..Those were the  times we literally fought for the swing; those 10 days of Onam holidays, the days at our grandmas house.. I so much miss being there and each year I wish I was there..

The Onam feasts which lasted for nearly 3 or 4 days at home down south...the yearly reunion of the family and colourful editions of news papers and magazines and so on and much more..

As I sit to write I go further and further deep in thoughts, some lovely Onam thoughts...which my children  miss these days.

Before the harvest....

Childhood memories ringing and swinging, amidst the family, the excitement once again, collecting flowers, laughter and gossips..
Fond memories of Onam time
Remembering all that I could
A few fun and lovely moments captured at home a day before the Onam.
Flower patterns from ..fallen and plucked flowers
Bougainvilleas, I never imagined fuchsias and oranges could make the rainy days brighter
My little one finally reached to the flowers and then u might have guessed what remained of them.

God bless us all.. My daughter's effort at painting Lord Ganesha.

Anklets that tugged at my heart..

There he goes..

its been a while...

its been a while,a long while to be away and I admit that..but its for sure I am coming back with a whole lot of new stories and amazing photography shot at various locations in India and for sure the monsoon series ...
I came back to Delhi two months back,with my little ones and its been hectic even now,but now I do feel like posting and sharing the stories..
I thank each and every reader who came across my blogs and read my stories and enjoyed..
Its festive mood everywhere and Our Onam is fast approaching and I am getting geared up for that..
I am slowly getting back into the earlier routines of collecting flowers,enjoying the fragrance around,floating flowers...
Some shots as soon as I came home to Delhi...
